When it comes to a city as iconic as London, it’s hard to escape the clichés. However, anyone who’s been to the British capital for longer than a week knows that there’s much more to it; hidden but still breathing beneath the surface.
It’s those hidden aspects of the city that are captured in Hoxton Mini Press’ newest publication, Unseen London. Featuring the work of 25 contemporary photographers, the book aims to guide us through the feelings of the city, rather than its landmarks. It takes the reader on a trip, from the ponds of Hampstead Heath to the streets of Oxford Circus – from the Grime scene, to the complex construction sites that seem to never, ever be over.
The pictures are accompanied by essays and stories written by Rachel Segal Hamilton, offering not only context, but an aspect of storytelling to the images, colourful and black and white, portraits or landscapes, concrete tunnels or green fields, that capture the London many live in, but often seem to forget.
